A fascinating shot, seeing this swan surrounded by green.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Andrew, it was unusual.
very nice and well taken
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Chantal.
This is wonderful times 10 The duckweed is reflecting it's colour back onto the swan in the most beautiful way.
Frank L Croston.: Well thank you times 10 then,
One of the best Swan shots I think I've seen, I like all the detail in the feathers.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Brian,pleased you think so.

You're done very well with this; a good idea to get it in the shade as it reduces the chance of blowouts. I have a feeling that the swan may end up witha tide mark when it walks out smile
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Alan, it can be a problem with Swans, I know, They have to be doing something unusual for me to bother, probably, yes. smile
wow! this is most unusual for me. i like that beady eye fixed on you.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Ayush, they can be aggressive, you have to be aware....
A swan surrounded with duck weed, We once had a Bassett Hound it tried to walk over a small pond covered in this, it disappeared completely and had to be dragged out on it's lead.Needless to say it never did it again.
Frank L Croston.: Oh dear, Martin, glad he was on a lead...
Beautiful shot Frank. Love the detail and you captured the water falling from the beak
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Janet, a touch of tone mapping does bring out the detail very well.
Marooned in a sea of duckweed.
Frank L Croston.: It was happily cruising through it, Bill, strange stuff...
